Last Gasp: Mark Lanegan’s 2012 Christmas Record ‘Dark Mark Does Christmas’

2 Jan

Mark-Lanegan-Christmas

Yes, I know it’s a bit late for a Christmas post, but as big of a fan of ex-Screaming Trees vocalist Mark Lanegan as I am, I was completely unaware that Lanegan had put out a Christmas record last year. Since leaving the Screaming Trees, Lanegan has been prolific when it comes to expanding his catalog, both as a solo artist, as well as his various collaborations with artists like Queens of the Stone Age, Greg Dulli (Afghan Whigs), and Isobel Campbell (Belle and Sebastian). He’s also been tapped to provide the vocals on the highly anticipated Mad Season record, the recently reformed Seattle grunge super group formerly fronted by Layne Stayley of Alice In Chains. And, of all the great music that came out in 2012, Lanegan’s brilliant ‘Blues Funeral‘, was by far my favorite record.

Unfortunately, Dark Mark is only available at Lanegan’s live shows. But you’re not quite ready to let go of your Christmas whiskey or spirit (like me), you can listen to all six tracks from ‘Dark Mark Does Christmas 2012’, here.
